|ドイツ、カンボジアの送電網整備に€3,000万融資。 Cache Translate Page||
アジア経済ニュースNNA ASIAは2018年12月03日に、カンボジアの新聞「クメール・タイムズ(Khmer Times/電子版)」が2018年11月30日に、ドイツ政府はカンボジアの送電網の整備プロジェクトに3,000万ユーロ(約38億7,487万円)を融資する。期間は2020年から2年間となると伝えたと報告した。
このプロジェクトでは、北西部シエムレアプ(Siem Reap/ក្រុងសៀមរាប)に2カ所の変電所を建設する。中部コンポントム州(Kampong Thom)、北部プレアビヒア州(Preah-vihear)、北西部ウドンメンチェイ(Otdar Meanchey)などの州では送電網の拡充も援助する。
ドイツのインゴ・カースティン駐プノンペン大使(Ambassador of Germany's Ingo-Karsten to Phnom Penh)は「送電網の拡充は、エネルギー効率を高め、遠隔地の人々にも電力をもたらし、電力料金の引き下げを可能にする.」と指摘sita。太陽光発電の普及のためにも、送電網の整備は不可欠だと強調した。
EDC(Electricity Authority of Cambodia/カンボジア電力公社)のケオ・ラタナック局長(Electricite du Cambodge director general Keo Rattanak)は「大気汚染の原因となるディーゼル発電の減少に期待する」と述べた。
|You Should Be Worrying about the Woman Shortage Cache Translate Page||
This month we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To mark the occasion, we have asked Human Rights Watch experts to reflect on some of the key human rights challenges in their area of specialty.
In the 80s and 90s, Newsweek Magazine delivered US women the cheery news that they were more likely to be killed by a terrorist than to find a husband after age 40. There were too many women—supposedly—and not enough men, and women were the losers. And, of course, staying single was a horrible fate.
The World Health Organization says the natural sex ratio at birth is about 105 boys to every 100 girls and its best to have equal numbers of men and women in a society. You need a few extra boys for balance, because men die earlier.
We are learning right now what happens when the sex ratio becomes wildly out of whack, through a huge unintended experiment. In the world’s two most populated countries—China and India—there is a serious woman shortage.
For example, for several decades in China, the most populated country in the world, sex ratios at birth have been much higher than 105, sometimes exceeding 120 boys for every 100 girls. Many parts of India, the second most populated country, have also, for decades, had a sex ratio at birth significantly higher than 105. The consequence is that in those countries combined—which together have a population of about 2.73 billion—there are now an estimated 80 million extra men. “Nothing like this has happened in human history,” the Washington Post wrote in an April 2018 article.
In India, many families used sex-selective abortion to choose boys, prompting the passage of a law that made it illegal to screen for the sex of the fetus and conduct sex-selective abortions. In China, similar decisions were encouraged by the “one-child” policy in place from 1979 to 2015, which prompted many parents to decide that their sole child must be a boy.
The common thread is gender discrimination—from garden-variety sexism to practical concerns about sons being more likely to financially support parents in old age and provide grandchildren, while daughters are expected to live with their in-laws—which is hardly unique to China and India. When women lack equal rights and patriarchy is deeply engrained, it is no surprise that parents choose to not to have daughters.
But there are consequences. For example, China now has a huge, and growing, gender gap among the generations most likely to be seeking a spouse—a bride shortage. Experts project that many of the extra men will never marry; others may go to extreme measures to do so.
The woman shortage is having harmful consequences in China and sometimes in neighboring countries. Human Rights Watch looked at one of those consequences for a report forthcoming in 2019 focused on bride-trafficking from Myanmar to China. In Myanmar’s Kachin and northern Shan states, bordering China, long-standing conflict escalated in recent years, displacing over 100,000 people. Traffickers prey on vulnerable women and girls, offering jobs in, and transport to, China. Then they sell them, for around $3,000 to $13,000, to Chinese families struggling to find brides for their sons. Once purchased, women and girls are typically locked in a room and raped repeatedly, with the goal of getting them pregnant quickly so they can provide a baby for the family. After giving birth, some are allowed to escape—but forced to leave their children behind.
There is evidence of similar patterns of bride migration and trafficking in Cambodia, North Korea, and Vietnam, and more may emerge from other countries bordering China. Importing women doesn’t solve the shortage—it spreads it.
Trafficking is only one consequence. The woman shortage has also been linked to other forms of violence against women. Other consequences include social instability, labor market distortions, and economic shifts.
There is irony here. When there are too many women, women lose. When there are too few women … women again lose. But the truth is we all lose. We know that skewed sex ratios are already having harmful consequences and we do not fully understand what other long-term consequences there may be for societies affected by these disparities.
China ended the “one-child” policy but continued restricting reproductive rights through a new “two-child” policy. It has banned sex-selective abortion. But such prohibitions are often both ineffective and a threat to women’s rights to access abortion and make their own reproductive choices.
China, India, and other affected countries need to act urgently to mitigate the effects of the woman shortage. They should carefully examine the consequences of the woman shortage, including links to trafficking and other forms of violence against women. More importantly, they need to do much more to tackle the fundamental cause of the demographic imbalance—gender discrimination and the distaste for daughters that it breeds.

|Comment on 4th National Climate Assessment report by Wookey Cache Translate Page||Ron. You do not seem to be aware of the work of the gapminder institute which has excellent tools and data on population: https://www.gapminder.org/tools/
It is instructive to take their 'chimpanzee test' population quiz to check your assumptions.
I agree that population is a massive problem, which makes most of the other problems much worse, but the point is that it is already under control in most of the world. The number of children born worldwide (136 million) has barely changed in 4 years - essentially the base population finally stopped rising (obviously overall population will still rise significantly because those new people last ~70 years). https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=popbyage
It's simply not true that 'developing countries in Asia' have high fertility rates. Most of them are already low. Bangladesh, Bhutan, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, China are all well below replacement, and Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar are only just above and still dropping. Thailand and China have rates well below the US and most of Europe. Only Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Philippines, Tajikistan, Jordan, PNG and Palestine remain above 3.
Only sub-Saharan Africa still has high fertility rates, and they are dropping there too since the 70s and 80s. Nigeria is the biggest problem as it's big _and_ high birthrate. It's currently projected to be a 400m population country by the time it stabilises.
The point of all this is that the population problem is actually largely fixed, assuming we can keep current trends in place. Fertility rates are already below replacement in most of the world, and we are already on track for a stable population around 2070. There isn't much that can be done to bend the curve very far there - people last a long time... The thing we _can_ change quickly, if we put our minds to it is the other half of the problem: consumption, which is why it makes sense to concentrate efforts there, whilst not taking our eye off the development/contraception/healthcare ball in the developing world. It is possible for countries to regress, see Egypt 2006, Tunisia 2005, France 1997, USA 1977 (and 2002), but it's quite rare.|
